Tuesday, September 15, 2015. BMG: According to 7 News, nearly three-quarters of all 411 students of Faith Nazarene Primary School in San Ignacio Town, Cayo District, were kept home by parents despite a compromise reached by the teaching staff and principal Policarpia Pech. All staff went to school but found that attendance was low – as much as ten percent in some classes.
Despite the teachers’ wish not to hurt their students by depriving them of school days, apparently parents are still adamant on Pech’s removal. General Manager of Nazarene Schools, Raymond Shepherd, said he was informed that a group of parents protested outside the school during the day.
He says he is urging the parents to carefully consider the detrimental effects to their children because of the missed classes. He’s also asking them to send their students to school today, Tuesday, because classes will take place as per normal as they should have happened on Monday.
